: I've heard the term "Skeeziks" used by certain older people as a nickname for youngsters. Does anyone know where the term originated, and if it has any meaning?
: Is it used in Great Britain?

Skeezix was a character in the comic strip "Gasoline Alley." He started as a baby and aged through the life of the strip. Aging of characters was an unusual feature of "Gasoline Alley."
